Chef Eddie Hernandez is temporarily closing all four Taqueria Del Sol locations in Atlanta, effective immediately. The Athens location also remains closed.

Hernandez, along with co-owner Mike Klank and managers George Trusler and Steve Shields, made the announcement on Facebook Wednesday morning, citing the impending peak in COVID-19 cases expected to occur over the next week as the reason for the closures.

Taqueria Del Sol was offering takeout service since closing its dining rooms in mid-March at the restaurants on Howell Mill Road and Cheshire Bridge Road, and in Chamblee and Decatur.

Hernandez joins a growing list of owners who have chosen to close their restaurants over concerns for the health and safety of staff and customers as COVID-19 continues to spread throughout Atlanta. La Fonda and Fellini’s Pizza, Ford Fry’s 12 restaurants, chef Anne Quatrano’s restaurants and Star Provisions market, Yeah Burger, Nakato, Chai Pani, and the Vortex have all closed over the last three weeks. However, Fry did reopen three Superica locations, Little Rey, and no. 246 earlier this week for takeout.

Eater Atlanta reached out to Hernandez and his team to ask how many employees are affected by the closures and whether staff is furloughed or laid off, and when the restaurants could reopen for takeout.

Stay home if sick. Check the Georgia Department of Public Health website for guidance and twice-daily updates on the latest number of reported COVID-19 cases.
